|Birth: ||Aug. 20, 1882|
|Death: ||Jun. 13, 1887|
Entered into the life of Paradise, Monday, June 13, A.D. 1887, BELLE ELOISE, beloved daughter of Eli H. and Celia Ditzler, aged 4 years, 9 months, 24 days.
She was baptized into the Church of Christ in tender infancy, and, from her earliest childhood, was a constant attend-upon the services of the Sunday School and Church.
The brief life of our bright and loving child, gifted with so many charms of mind and person will ever remain a precious legacy in our stricken hearts. As droops the lovely flower before noon-day heat, so has faded this angel child from our loving eyes and passed to the arms of the Good Shepherd who has said: "Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not, for of such is the Kingdom of God."
"So bright, so pure, why should we weep
Thy early death, sweet child?
How might we hope on earth to keep
Thy spirit undefiled?
What but thy prompt departure hence
Could save thy angel innocence?"
"Now thou art in the spirit-land,
With the holy and the blest;
Where the wicked cease to trouble, and
The weary are at rest;
And we are happy, since we know
That thou shalt be forever so."
